T-13: 13 Best Beaches


I think I'll stay on the dock...

Maybe all that splashing around look like fun to you. To me, it look like I'm better off, watching from the warm, sunny beach with my furriends. If you want to find a sucker to drag around behind the boat, talk to Rocky the Turkey Cat.

That being said, the following are the 10 best beaches in the USA as picked by Dr. Beach:

1. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks, North Carolina
2. Caladesi Island State Park, Dunedin/Clearwater, Florida
3. Coopers Beach, Southampton, New York
4. Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii
5. Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
6. Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii
7. Main Beach, East Hampton, New York
8. Coronado Beach, San Diego, California
9. Lighthouse Point Park, Daytona Beach, Florida
10. Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida

Outside the US, Dr. Beach did not pick these, but I have it on good authority:

11. Parque Nacional Isla Contoy, Cancun, Mexico
12. Diniwid, Boracay Island, Philippines
13. Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia

Judging from the pictures, I think I might want to check out Hanalei Bay, Hawaii. I also think maybe they want to change the name of the last one to Mancatly Beach.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun!

And remember: If life's a beach, then the world is my litterbox!

Well, since we aren't Americans, we haven't visited any beaches in the US. We guess we'll take his word for it.

Mommy says that any warm beach would be good right now!

Now I'm in the mood for a lounge on the beach!

Not that I've ever been to one, since I'm an indoors-only kitty, but I feel inspired.

Daisy said...

"Rocky the Turkey Cat"! Hahahaha! I do not think that is the same thing as a Turkish Van Cat. Or is it?

PB & J said...

Oh a beach sounds lovely - a little sun and funny things to chase in the sand! Mommy's been to Hanalei Bay and Coronado Beach and she agrees with Dr. Beach, they are good!

Our small city in British Columbia is situated between two lakes with pawesome beaches. Me and Mum live one block from one of the beaches - maybe she will take me strollering to it one day this summer. She probably won't let me out of the stroller though - with all that sand I might think it is a great big litter box : )

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Two of Mom and Dad's favorite beaches are on your list Diamond. They love Siesta Beach in Florida and the beaches of the Outer Banks.

Mickey said...

I'm with you Diamond! Water is for drinking ;)
We have a pretty neat beach not too far from us. Lawrencetown Beach. Beans like to surf there,even when it's cold!!!! Beans are wierd.
